Welcome to Restorative Aromatics
Restorative Aromatics was started in 2018 by Jennifer Vatza, an eclectic witch, certified aromatherapist, herbalist, perfumer, skincare formulator, and incense crafter. Jennifer wanted to fulfill a life-long dream of starting her own business even though she still currently works at her day job in order to support herself and her growing business. Jennifer has a background in the creative arts which led her down the path towards earning certifications in aromatherapy and has completed many courses in herbalism, perfuming, and natural skincare.Since 2018, Jennifer has created an extensive product catalog and has moved to creating products focusing on empowering the self through sacred rituals in their lives.
We provide high quality handcrafted products to empower the self with every day sacred rituals including bath products including bath salts, milk baths, soaps, and bubble bath), personal care products such as unique niche fragrances, lotions, serums, botanical hair rinses, and shampoo bars, and metaphysical products including ritual oils, powders, incense, candles, botanical charms, and botanical blends. There is a growing trend moving people to explore alternative religions and folk practices as a part of finding their voice and their own personal empowerment. We provide the necessary tools to build that foundation for personal and spiritual growth.
Restorative Aromatics will be rebranding to Belladonna's Botanicals in early 2020 and will be launching a new website as well. Stay tuned for updates and further details of the transition.

Halloween is a tradition passed down from the Celtic pagan celebration of Samhain (pronounced Sowen) which marked the end of the harvest and transition into winter, which was often associated with death. It is said that on Halloween that the veil between the worlds thins allowing the dead to communicate with the living realm. This became a time of great celebration with ornate costumes and divination or fortune-telling. The traditions were mostly predominant in European countries (or those colonized by Europeans.)
I've been steeped in research on how plants, flowers, earth, resins, oils, and other materials are used in magickal practices throughout different traditions. Its a lot more esoteric than the standard therapeutic approach, but it has been a wonderful exploration into plant lore and folk magic. Smudging has become a popular practice in recent years used to remove negative energies from the home and other personal spaces, but its origins come from the Indigenous people of North America.
